Bernice grew up in rural Singapore, surrounded by greenery, nature and texture. While she teaches art and works as an independent knitwear designer out of her home studio, pottery holds a special place in her heart.  It allows her to connect to memories of her childhood surrounded by trees, sand, mud, puddles, moss, dried leaves, wooden buildings and the sound of rain on zinc roofs.  Through pottery, she continues to discover how deeply these impressions have shaped her idea of beauty.
